The above pictures are of a ceramic tile repair made on a site, the contractor had mistakenly fitted the wrong type of shower head bracket, there was over 100 screw holes to be repaired as some mistakes were made when the installer was fitting the shower head bracket. The builder had change the position of the brackets several times to make the fixture look good to the eye, drilling more holes and creating more work, but it was not obvious the extra holes were there until the brackets were removed, we made a ceramic tile repair to the remaining holes saving the contractor a great deal of time and money.
The area the tiles were adhered to a was box section constructed from timber and plywood, the concern was in removing the tiles and tile adhesive the the plywood sheet would have been damaged creating more work as the entire box section would have had to been removed, also when removing individual tiles there is always a chance of disturbing the surrounding tiles and possibly damaging them or making them loose. The other concerns with removing individual tiles is the new grout applied very rarely matches the existing grout due to the build up of dirt and wearing that is unnoticed over time, and it is often very awkward/near on impossible, to seat a tile in flush and square when the surrounding tiles create a restriction.
